Play a key role in raising funds to build a more secure and privacy-respecting Internet.
What You Will Do
The primary project you will help fund is Let’s Encrypt. We are a small team who work diligently and creatively to ensure a critically important service is available to people around the world.
We are looking for an experienced fundraiser to help strengthen and diversify our funding channels.
This will primarily include:
Significantly expand our corporate sponsorships
Prospect, cultivate and solicit contributions from high-value individual donors
Develop a comprehensive plan for events and then execute while operating within a budget
You will also help on an as-needed basis with other aspects of our fundraising, including communications development, grant writing, and strategy development for funding new projects. We work in an iterative fashion and welcome proactive efforts to improve existing fundraising activities.
Corporate sponsorship decision-makers are often a CTO, CIO or founder/CEO, so you will need to be confident in recognizing their needs, using appropriate communication styles, and developing messaging that is effective with this audience.
You will work collaboratively with the VP of Communications and another Fundraising Specialist.
